During the treatment large stones are used to warm and massage the legs and feet, and small stones to work reflex points and more specific areas. The treatment is extremely relaxing and it feels wonderful for your feet.

Hot Stone massage originated in India and China and has been around for centuries; ancient civilizations believed that hot stones cleansed the body and relaxed the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind. As the name implies, the treatment involves using smooth stones which are heated and are used to massage the lower leg and to carry out the reflexology.
